Clothing covers about 90% of our body.
We can do very little about our genetics and embrace what 'mother nature' gave us; although women have the advantage of cosmetics to help out.
Great Style gives you Confidence = Success
Putting thought behind what you wear is not 'style over substance' but the creation of a visual shorthand, enabling you to tell the world about who you are and what you stand for. Your clothing should feel like a natural extension of your personality. Your clothing and accessories should fit, flatter, be functional and fortify. This means you can give 100% effort to the job in hand without worrying how you look. You’ve done the hard work beforehand. I can advise on:
Business casual dressing
WORKSHOPS & TALKS
Do you or your staff reflect your Business Brand?
The way you present yourself will motivate staff and customers... or switch them off. But are your staff aware of this truth?
Non-verbal communication through dress and image is a vital part of any successful business. If your staff look good they will feel good, project themselves more positively and perform better. Your business in turn will benefit as you will have generated increased productivity with happier staff. If your existing customers like what they see, they will continue doing business with you and tell others about you also... it's a 'win-win' situation.
Through talks or running small workshops, I will help give a new sense of style in your workplace to ensure your Business Brand is being correctly represented. Subjects can include the following...
Maximising your working wardrobe
Image and Personal Presentation
Effective Uniform Wear & Personal Grooming
Creating a Dress Code
Speed Styling (15 minute one-to-one consultations)
Or if you have other subjects in mind, please contact me, as I will be happy to tailor subjects to meet your specific business requirements.
Business Image Consultations
Do you dress for the job you want... or the job you have?
Impressions are important – but how often do you think about first impressions when you give proposals or presentations to your clients? You only get one chance to make the right first impression, so make sure it's a good one.
Your image continuously sends out powerful messages about you as a person and what you represent. Over 50% of first impressions are based on your appearance, and these are formed within seconds or people meeting you. We all have a brand image whether we’ve consciously cultivated it or not – but what does yours say about you? Is the perception that others have about you really what you think it is, what you want it to be – or, is it MILES OFF?
Your Personal Brand is what people say about you beyond your hearing, it’s the words they use to describe you to others and it’s how you make others feel about you – just like a corporate brand or a product brand. We don’t always think about how others see us; therefore, our personal brand is often left to chance. Even those who wear uniforms still have a choice in how they present themselves. We are now in a business world where people represent a brand more strongly than any slick website or glossy brochure ever can...your image is your Company's image!
People who take the time to consider how they present themselves will come across as those who value themselves and care for colleagues and the company. Think of a person who dresses quite 'dated', who comes across as having dated ideas and is unwilling to move with the times.
Or the 'It will do for work' mindset (of women in particular) who will wear makeup and well groomed hair for socialising, but do not see this as being important for work. How you dress creates an obvious visual impression, but also reflects a persons attitude and state of mind.
I can help you project the right business image and personal brand that sends out the 'correct message' of who you are and what you stand for...
